It was a great move as Tottenham chairman Daniel initial talks with England U21 international star, Djed Spence; Although, the talks were not successful as the bid-offer is rejected by the north London club, Middleborough indicating they believe his worth to be in excess of £10m.

Meanwhile, talks have been on between Spurs and Boro were not successful in finding an agreement, with the north London club indicating they believe his worth to be in excess of £10m. Boro, however, wants at least £15m plus add-ons – so the conversation did not go further.

Tottenham is truly in need of this Middleborough defender signing into Conte’s squad, and the player wants the move, but the North London club is prepared to move on if no deal can be struck and does have other options. Spence had a tremendous season at Nottingham Forest and was a huge part of that Steve Cooper side that got promoted to the Premier League.

“The 21-year-old made 46 appearances and there was a chance he might have joined Forest this summer but all eyes are pointing towards Spurs.

Truly, Spurs is desperate to sign him and we know he is desperate to play for Antonio Conte in the Premier League.

This is all now down to money. We know that Daniel Levy is a fierce negotiator in the transfer window when it comes to signing players and we know there is a gap between what Tottenham wants to pay and what Middlesbrough is willing to accept.

“It’s a case of who blinks first, but what we’re told is that if Tottenham doesn’t get this move over the line then they will move onto other targets.

“Conte wants to sign a new right-back, he sees Spence as the No 1 target but he’s not the only one.”
